What the- I clicked on the first link and it took me to a site selling timeshare condos at a fundamental Christian religious retreat, and the second link brought me to a porno site dedicated to horse fetishes! Not safe for work, for sure. And the horse thing is questionable, too. Tsk tsk

A couple to add, if any updating is likely:

- Gizmodo's 'hacked' site

No, you aren't alone in that. I thought it was a sub-par year too. Could it be that the economy had people in a non-joking mood?
